Specs: Windows XP
I´ve got another, bigger problem, when i update my drivers with Driver scanner uniblue, after installing PCI BUS driver, troubles have appeared. Icon in desktop and taskbar became too much bigger . After I partly fixed the problem (icon were lessened), but graphic became deformed, windows are still too big , square, cros and line above in the left corner in particular window are smaller and the most importantly; standby icon is shaded out and unavaible. What´s going on please help me! Thanks advance!
P.S. I have windows xp service pack 3.

I know it's a "chore", but drivers should be downloaded from the computer manufacturer's website. In other words, if you have a Dell, you go to the Dell site, if you have an HP, go to the HP site, & so on. If you have a custom built PC, the drivers are found at the motherboard manufacturer's website. You can also find drivers at the video card manufacturer's website, audio chip manufacturer's website, network chip manufacturer's website, etc. The bottomline is you should be familiar enough with your hardware to download & install driver updates yourself. Your mistake was you relied on some dumbazz program to find the drivers for you & now you're paying the price. And that's on top of the price you paid for the useless driver-finder program.

Do it the right way. If you feel you can't handle the "chore", post the make/model of your system & one of us should be able to do it for you. BTW, unless you have a laptop, standby should not be used.

I agree with mickliq. Those programs I've seen myself find incorrect updates. Since you indicated that you updated the pci bus driver you should be able to roll it back to what is was before if you haven't already. Start Button/run/devmgmt.msc to display the device manager. Expand "system devices". Look for "Pci bus" double click on it. Select driver tab. Click on "Roll Back Driver" button. Best rule of thumb, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

Please let us know if our advice was able to help you.

One of my graphic controllers doesn´t work properly. An eclamation mark is drawn near-by. The error is ,, This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12). Otherwise grephic solution is little bit deformed. An advice announces: ,,If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system˝
